Moving Tips
Here are some tips to remember that will help on your next move!!

 







    1. If your are able to move any time of the year, don't wait until summer.
      The summer months are the "peak" moving season. Also, the first and last
      days of the month are extra busy. Specify the exact date you want to
      move and when it will be convenient for an agent to visually survey your
      household and prepare an estimate.

    2. Before the agent arrives, tour your house from attic to basement. Decide what
      to move and what to discard. Make sure you show the agent everything that
      is to be moved.

    3. If you plan to do the packing yourself, start collecting suitable containers
      and packing materials.

    4. Set goals and deadlines to ensure that all packing is completed by moving
      day.

    5. Don't forget to notify the post office that you'll be moving and what your
      new address will be. A temporary forwarding address may be necessary if
      you don't have a permanent one by the time you move.

    6. If you are being relocated at your company's request, find out what
      portion of our moving expenses the company will pay. If your company
      has a written moving policy, ask for a copy.

    7. Dispose of flammables such as fireworks, cleaning fluids, matches, and aerosol
      cans. Drain fuel from your power mower and other machinery, and discard
      partly used cans of oil, paint, bleach or any substance that may leak. Be sure
      the water is emptied from your steam iron.

    8. Obtain a written appraisal of antique items to verify value. Avoid waxing or oiling wooden antiques (and fine wood furniture) before moving, because some
      products may soften the wood, making it vulnerable to imprinting from funiture
      pads.

    9. Unplug all television sets 24 hours in advance of a move, if possible, so that
      they will be at room temperature on moving day. Moving a TV set in which
      heat is still retained could cause internal damage.

    10. Happy Moving!!!
